 Sustainable development 

Sustainable development blends competitive business with the long-term needs of society. Economic success is therefore considered in a context of social justice and environmental sustainability - the now-familiar 'triple bottom line' used for reporting business plans and progress. From the business's perspective an apt definition is:

Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Bill has undertaken a number of projects concerned with aspects of sustainable development. These include materials for a BBC for Business video series, his work with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales on corporate governance, and an annual ten-week course on Management and the Environment for City University Business School's part-time MBA programme.
